Mr. Bourita: "Anyone who Engages in Provocations Violates International Law and Opposes UN"
"Morocco has always considered that there cannot be any political process with gangs, nor with bandits and all those who have lost their credibility and who operate as armed groups and gangs", Mr. Bourita pointed out at a joint press briefing with his counterparts from Guinea-Bissau, Suzi Carla Barbosa, and from Equatorial Guinea, Simeón Oyono Esono Angue, held at the end of the inauguration ceremony of the consulates of these two countries in Dakhla.
"Today, we are in front of bandits in the true sense of the term", who cannot be the interlocutors of Morocco, he said, noting that this situation "cannot be the base of any political process".
Mr. Bourita pointed out that "the acts of these bandits" will not affect the path on which Morocco has embarked with conviction and in accordance with international law, recalling the clear positions of the United Nations on these provocations and their illegitimacy, both at the level of the Security Council through its resolutions in 2017, and through the voice of the UN Chief.
Mr. Bourita noted that the opening of three new consulates in Dakhla, which coincides with the 45th anniversary of the glorious Green March, is of particular importance for Morocco as a legal signal forming part of the framework of the Vienna Convention on Consular Relations, while highlighting the role of these diplomatic representations in the development of economic and human relations with the Kingdom.
The opening of seven consulates so far in the city of Dakhla is a positive development, especially in terms of support provided by brotherly and friendly countries to the Moroccanity of the Sahara, he noted.
He also explained that the opening of consulates representing countries from different regions of the African continent confirms that this dynamic is not limited to a single region, but concerns all African countries.
In this regard, Mr. Bourita expressed the wish to see countries from other continents inaugurate diplomatic representations in the Moroccan Sahara, adding that this is also a strong signal which reflects the positive development experienced by the Sahara issue, particularly at the African level.
The inauguration of these three consulates also takes place in the context of the Security Council's consultations on the renewal of the mandate of MINURSO and the resolution expected next week, which confirms that the UN and African countries are no longer fooled by misleading speeches, provocations and acts of bandits, he underlined.
